We just wrapped up two incredible days of volunteering to clean-up Highway 6 that runs through Keystone Resort! We had over 85 participants on June 1 and 6 and collected over 1,580 pounds (June 1-760 pounds, June 6-820 pounds) of trash that lined the roadway. We also collected over 200 pounds of scrap metal and over 150 pounds of bottles and cans. We could not have pulled this off without everyone’s hard work and dedication to keeping our resort clean.Special thanks goes out to: the Keystone Conference Center Services and kitchen staff for two great barbecue lunches, Roads maintenance staff for the outstanding assistance with getting everything collected from the side of the highway, and disposed of at the Summit Landfill as well as the Keystone Citizens League for their eagerness to help on both days. I am so thankful for everyone’s help and I look forward to the next Adopt-a-Highway event. Sincerely,Frank G. Papandrea,Keystone Resort environmental manager
